NRWA Internships: Learning on the Job
The Nashua River Watershed Association offers unpaid internships to young people interested in learning more about the fields of natural resource protection and environmental education. Interns have an opportunity to work closely with NRWA’s professional staff with a focus on a specialized project or with a broader exposure to the diversity of work conducted by the Association. High school and college interns have worked with our water monitoring program and our purple loosestrife bio-control project. They’ve also assisted our educators with classroom lessons, field trips, and leading outdoor summer youth programs. Interns may assist with development and publicity work with activities ranging for helping to organize large mailings to creating displays for outreach events.
While NRWA is eager to work with interns, opportunities are subject to staff availability and project appropriateness.
